Ok, got a weird situation that is brewing and wanted to get some input from the peanut gallery.
My mom and stepdad are about to move from their house where they have U-Verse now to a new home in an area that is definitely not U-Verse or cable TV serviceable, and I'm about 90% sure they can't even get DSL. Monthly bills are an issue, so we're trying to avoid setting them up with an LTE service or satellite based internet.
My brother lives exactly 2/3 of a mile away as the crow flies and he has DSL. He's also not serviceable by U-Verse or cable, and has DirecTV and is perfectly happy with it. My parents' preferred TV provider out of their two choices is DirecTV.
Now, the wrinkle:
I am leaning towards getting a set of these: http://www.ez-bridge.../ezbridgelt.htm to shoot a wifi signal from my brother's house to my mother's house so that they can share his DSL connection.
My question: My brother has a Genie and his own account. My mother would have her own account (we're not considering account stacking, so that is not an issue here) and would get her own Genie. Is there a problem with two Genies on the same IP network (they both would possibly utilize VOD, so they want them connected)? Is there a problem with two DirecTV receivers from different accounts existing on the same IP network?
I'd like to avoid having to do things like setup two separate IP ranges and networks on each side of the link, the simpler the better (so I don't have to go down there and troubleshoot when something breaks) but if necessary, I could do that. Just curious if anyone else has had a situation like this.
